An exciting new work inspired by the British Library’s Untold Lives Project comes to you in the form of ebook penny pamphlets, an ebook collection and in hard copy. Penned by writer Jamie Rhodes, this great collection of factional ‘histories’ will be launched at The British Library.
Join us at the British Library event on 20th Oct where costumed actors will perform readings from the historic collections.
Dead Men’s Teeth has been supported by the British Library and funded by The Arts Council as part of a desire to promote emerging writers.
“We are delighted that our Untold Lives blog inspired this set of short stories created from the ‘small but beautiful details of real lives’ in the British Library Archive Collections.”
—Margaret Makepeace – British Library Curator, India Office Records
Jamie Rhodes who is a committee member of the Writers’ Guild (London & South-East) is of particular interest as the project involves educational workshops, combines history and literature and is a collaboration between him as a writer and artist (Christa Leask) and brings together a variety of creative and charitable forces, lighting the way for the next generation of creative talents. The Arts Council are trying to bridge the gap between all aspects of the arts, archives and history to bring to life for the next generation, the curios of the past.
Jamie Rhodes is a member of IdeasTap, the charity for emerging creative talent and Dead Men’s Teeth is published by Mardibooks, the boutique publishing platform set up by academics and writers to support new talent. Mardibooks provide IdeasTap members with a writing partnership and have published collections by over 130 IdeasTap members.
